Parrikar calls for long-term policy to resolve Kashmir issue
Panaji, April 14: Goa Chief Minister and former Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Friday said that the Kashmir conundrum is not an easy issue to resolve and only a long term policy can tackle it.

"It is not easy to resolve the Kashmir issue. There is a need for a long-term policy to resolve the Kashmir issue," Parrikar said at the 126th birth anniversary celebration of Babasaheb Ambedkar in Panaji.
He also said that New Delhi wasn't a place he got habituated to. "Delhi is not my place. It is not the place I am habituated to. There was a lot of pressure on me," Parrikar said.
